Case Study

Young student in uniform looking at their tablet running EasyReader."The scope for EasyReader is really impressive. It’s making our children so much more independent.

I have one particularly bright boy in year 4, who’s a good example. Now he is reading for pleasure.

EasyReader and RNIB Bookshare has opened up a whole range of books to him."
